Blessings and Therapy
Created By: Kathleen Crapse

Hand made needle work is both blessing and therapy. Blessing for the recipient and therapy for the maker. When my Mother died, I NEEDED to do something - so I 'invented' a hexagon granny square and found yarn that matched my brother's new couch and chair. The afghan made up quickly and gave me a positive and creative way to express my grief.

My first prayer shawl was a batwing pattern that I made up to test the pattern in burgundy with stripes of rose and pink. It was beautiful. I gave it to my Aunt when my Uncle was in Hospice the evening before his death. It exactly matched her outfit that day. I had an 'Angel nudge' to pick up the shawl on my way out the door to travel to Philadelphia [10 hours away] for the visit. I wasn't even sure that I would give it to her. But the 'nudge' to give it to my Aunt became stronger and stronger as the trip progressed. By the time we arrived there was no question that the shawl would go to my Aunt. It was a perfect way to express my sympathy and caring; and a comfort for her at a very difficult time.

The skills of knitting and crochet I learned at age 8 and have continued for more than 50 years are blessings that I continue to share with family, friends and those in need. God does such good work through us. ;~)))
